The water streams were about 12 to 15 feet. Water is a sign of life and health. In 2008 NASA found ice on Mars. They have seen water on Mars before. NASA is trying to figure out what caused the water. Rovers are finding humidity in the air.

It seem that water is flowing on the surface of Mars mostly in the summer time.

In the 2030s NASA is going to try to send astronauts to Mars so NASA can see if humans can live on Mars.  A clue for life is if they collect rocks and soil and bring it back to earth so scientists can look at them closely and break it apart to see if water is inside.
